I just got home not long ago from SnowClassico 2, even with a cold and if you weren’t there, shame on you. Here’s a quick recap.
The GOOD – There were a number of things. Jermaine Jones long awaited debut, finishing with a goal and an assist.
The Rapids are undefeated at home, now at 3-0-0.
Badji nets his first goal of the season which turned out to be the game winner in the 81st minute.
Free coffee and hot chocolate for those in attendance, thanks RFO!
The BAD – The weather in some ways. Defense on Ronald Zubar’s goal in the 59th min for RBNY. It’s the exact same play that Dom Dwyer scored on Wedensday for Sporting against the Rapids, unmarked on the back side of the goal. Defense needs to tighten up.
This game could’ve have been worse than the 2-1 loss for RBNY as the Rapids missed many chances around the net, Pappa off the post, Badji off the post, Badji header saved by Robles, Solignac goal called offsides. RBNY weren’t really a threat offensively throughout.
The UGLY – MLS officiating, but hey at least we didn’t have Toledo officiate this game.
The Rapids are now 4-2-1, 3rd place in the Western Conference and in the Supporters Shield race with 13 pts.
